Meal Plan~ Labor Day

Okay, let's try this again. Today (Saturday), we followed the meal plan. *round of applause please.  We ate tomato soup and grilled cheese for lunch (the boys also ate baby Lima beans). For dinner I make a pork loin in the oven with carrots, onions, and potatoes. It was so good I will insert a picture:

Anyways, this is Labor Day weekend so I am NOT looking forward to grocery shopping tomorrow, but it is a necessary evil. Here is my meal plan that I WILL follow!

For Breakfasts: Oatmeal, Raisin Bran (my personal fav), English muffins with egg and turkey sausage, or waffles.

  • Lunch: Leftovers... we have plenty!
  • Dinner: Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, and asparagus
  • Lunch: Grill Food! Burgers and hot dogs with baked beans and mac&cheese... America! 
  • Dinner: Shepherd's Pie (with ground turkey)
  • Lunch: Broccoli Mac&cheese
  • Dinner: Leftover Shepherd's pie
  • Lunch: Prorogues/ homemade pizza... quite a combo, I know.
  • Dinner: BBQ Chicken sandwiches, broccoli, and mac&cheese
  • Lunch: Crab legs and corn on the cob (the boys will prob not eat sandwiches #pickyeaters )
  • Dinner: Torteloni & peas
  • Crazy day at Emmett's school and my work... we will probably grab lunch somewhere 
  • Dinner: something quick and easy like PB&J with yogurt and fruit

Meal Plan FAIL!

It wouldn't be unusual for us to have to adjust our meal plan a little... Things come up, no big deal. This is the first week in the history of our family that we have literally not made one dish from our meal plan. My awful week began with getting sick.  I missed work Tuesday and was still worthless Wednesday. I was in survival mode all week and it's been rough. I really couldn't even tell you what we ate this week but I faintly recall my husband making pasta at some point. 
... Here's hoping next week goes a little more smooth.

Case of the Sundays...and my Meal Plan

You know those weeks that are so stressful and awful that Sunday is hard to enjoy because you know tomorrow is Monday. =(
I literally spent my entire day doing load after load of laundry, picking up the boys' snacks off of the floor, and doing dishes. It was glamorous.
We ate really crappy during my crappy work week so I sat down to do some meal planning. I am missing those days when I had a freezer supply of "lazy night" or in this case "crappy week" dinners. I see a meal-prep day in my near future. For breakfast we do a lot of waffles, oatmeal, or eggs. Here is what I have come up with for this weeks lunches and dinners:

  • Lunch: tilapia and steamed veggies
  • Dinner: Left-over pizza (don't judge)
  • Lunch: Shrimp and potatoes
  • Dinner: Pork Loin with potatoes and carrots
  • Lunch: Tacos 
  • Dinner: Grab night (husband is working 
  • Lunch: Grilled cheese and tomato soup 
  • Dinner: BBQ chicken sandwiches, corn, and mac&cheese
  • Lunch: Left-overs
  • Dinner: Swedish Meatballs, asparagus, mashed potatoes. 
Let's see if I can stick to my plan... pictures to follow =)
